Stuff: Solar Headlights on your Hat

Ride at night a lot? Want some extra carbon-free illumination on your ride?

The “2CLight Solar Cap” may be right up your alley:


Spend the day in the great outdoors and when the sun dips below the horizon you press a switch under the same brim and Sol’s captured energy is still with you, beaming out via a couple of bright light emitting diode (LED) bulbs.

The LEDs are designed to angle down and shine about 2 metres ahead of you for effective night walking, and not blind companions when you look them in the face.

The award winning design comes from New Zealand, but with limited international distribution at this stage, they’re selling the caps on line for about $35 USD. Three basic styles are on offer, and there is also a winterised version with fake fur ear flaps.
